Yes CG, I was thinking freezer jam, it taste so much fresher and while we don't eat a lot of jam
( no one would ever accuse me of having a sweet tooth). It would be good on ice cream and I have been wanting to make some Danish pastries ) was going to make cheese, but raspberry would be yummy ;)

Today I have been on the exercise bike, then headed out to the shops to get some stuff, then to the garden centre to buy some more baby spinach, which I need to plant this afternoon

Just had some lunch and watched the last episode of Chicago Fire for season 1...so glad they are making another season

I'm waiting for the air conditioner guy to come give us an estimate. Let's hope I have something to post in "Last thing that made you smile" in a little while.

I just came home from a funeral for someone who worked with DH until she retired a few years ago. It was a very nice service in a beautiful old historic church downtown. She was a sweet lady.

The air conditioning is a deal through Costco. I gave them a cheque in payment and now I wait for them to call for an appointment to install it.

It costs extra because they have to go through our "attic", extra for extra electrical cord, extra for extra copper piping, and extra for a pump for the condense water. The price for standard installation assumes an outside wall where the inside unit is installed. I live in a townhouse - neighbour houses attached on both sides. Oh well.

I'm headed to Vancouver for a doctor's appointment in 2 hours. I am driving locally but still am not able to go distances and this is the furthest you can go North West without going in the ocean! A friend from church is driving me as TB is working. It is a one hour trip there, a one hour appointment and probably at least an hour and a half home because of rush hour. I am looking forward to the chance to chat with this lady as I have been wanting to get to know her better for awhile now. The kindness she has shown in driving me is something for the smile thread AND the thankfullness thread!

Since I have so many doctors (a GP and several specialists for asthma, my knee, and other things), I keep a list of medicines, procedures and events which effect everything so each of them knows what the other is doing. They are all appreciative of it but truth be told I am behind on keeping it up so am rushing to fill in the latest items.

Updating my meds, etc...I hate it when they change faster than I can keep up. The cool thing though, I can update them on the computer and put them on a flash drive...instant!!!

I just found out the the 24 year old daughter of a friend has been diagnosed with an inoperable, untreatable brain tumor. She has suffered from headaches since she was about 12 and they were never able to pinpoint anything but now the tumor showed on an MRI. This is devastating news and I am heartbroken - she is beautiful, smart and has a heart of gold. My pillow will be wet with tears tonight.

Praying for your friends daughter...and praying for the doctors involved. Such sad news.
